This is to show a relatively easy way of turning the standard rack into a combination seat, with room for an adult in front or a kid facing backwards toward the rider. We are currently working on making this in fabric and aluminium as well – for a lighter and sleeker look.
“…A really cool thing with the Omnium Cargo is that the rider himself can equip the load surface in many different ways. Instead of a fixed platform or box, you can attach whatever you like with ease. Omnium Bikes offer a range of solutions including a seat, a tough canvas sling, and a range of waterproof bags up to 400 litres in capacity! And on top of that you can even have a back rack like a normal bike too….”
“…cycling was really a pleasure, the bike behaves, yes like a bike! None of the vague steering that some other cargo bikes seem to have, making it so easy to get used to! It might seem strange not to see the front wheel, but after a minute or two I forgot that and could even jump the front wheel up curbs. With a load on the front the bike was very manageable, and the strong two-legged stand meant I wasn’t worried about balance when I loaded and unloaded the bike…”
Now we have a Facebook page so you can ‘Like’ and then post your pictures, questions, ideas and your own Omnium adventures there. Here’s a sweet picture of a young Omnium rider enjoying the sunshine of 2012. Roll on summer 2013!
We are now fully up and running. We have fully built-up and ready to ride Omnium Cargo’s and Omnium Mini’s in our Copenhagen showroom. You can come and have a test ride and see just how light and easy to ride these amazing bikes are. Any normally strong person can lift the bike with one hand, and yet it can carry around 80kg+ on it’s luggage area with ease. It feels as easy, safe and as natural as riding any normal bike. Don’t take our word for it, come and try one out! We also have a full range of accessories in stock too.
Big with a big B. We are are currently testing a huge cargo bag which opens up to be as big as a house! This prototype bag is currently being used professionally by cargo courier company By-Expressen and can hold 400 L, which is about 80 kg of boxed coffee for example.
It is made of durable truck tarpaulin and we’ll also make a smaller size too. We think we’ll make them in red or black.
We are way behind schedule with the Omnium accessories, but here is our first prototype of a comfy child seat. Its positioning leaves room for the 120L bag too.
In the next attempt we are going to lower the seat and also make it possible to turn the seat around, depending whether your passenger wants to see you, or the road ahead.
The final product is not going to resemble this seat, but is merely to show the possibilities.
A windshield is also on the drawing board.
